O by Kissaki
O by KHG's mission is to take diners on a culinary exploration through their senses. Expanding beyond the omakase focus of Kissaki's flagship, O focuses on a blend of Japanese and Italian cuisine commonly known in Japan as Itameshi, which translates simply into an Italian meal. On small plates, skewered foods, hot ingredients fresh from the robata grill, and sushi are served alongside craft cocktails and sake. O's menu strives to be unique and innovative.

Owner Garry Kanfer is a serial entrepreneur, founder, and a father of three. Kanfer is the founder of Big Drop, a full-service digital agency, servicing Fortune 500 clients. Known for building brands and designing world-class digital experiences, Big Drop was integral to the creation of the Kissaki brand. As a self-described “sushi addict”, launching a one-of-a-kind omakase experience was the natural next step for Kanfer. When COVID-19 hit NYC, Kanfer spearheaded Kissaki’s overnight transformation to a rapid production take-out model and now has expanded to open Kissaki locations in NoHo, the Upper West Side, Long Island City, Water Mill and Greenwich, CT. This is in addition to opening summer pop ups in Montauk and on the Gansevoort Rooftop.
